Default timeline and security check

Hello:

I am very disturbed nowadays about my future and have a few simple questions to ask.
I came to Canada as an international student 5 years ago and am currently working under the post-graduation employment till the end of this year.

I applied for PR earlier this year (i.e. Feb 2003) and got a letter of acknowledgement back with the file # in May 2003.

Now, how long should i wait before i hear back from the immigration officials about my assesment? My work permit expires in Feb 2004 and it seems certain that i wont be getting an assesment before the expiration of my work permit.

Also, it seems like most people are getting their PR in approximately 2 years. Does that include security check? I am from the middle east and am wondering if it'll take more time for me than for others?

Please advice!!!!!

Thanks a lot in advance.

Did u apply for PR from within Canada or to London which is the visa post for ME applicants. If London then you can easily take 2 yrs as minimum for your process. I am not sure but within Canada or buffalo maybe faster.
